About Me

PurpleRobot is the online home of part-time crafter Karen.

I am an American expat living in Southern Alberta with my husband, my German Shepherd Gunnar and out kittens Kitty Marie and Paul. We lead a quiet life, filled with our favorite things including crafting, diy, golf, and all things geek (Macs, Xbox, Comics, etc). I’ve been drawing, sewing, and crocheting since I was a kid (thanks to a patient grandmother) and I’ve taken up knitting and spinning in the last few years.
